On your mark, get set, plow

The plows are ready when the time comes, but there has scarcely been enough of the white stuff to plow yet. However the slat is going down liberally on major roads due that unfortunate stuff back ice, or even real ice.
The New Scotia Department responsible for roads is big in salt spreading, and must wash down their trucks frequently to stay ahead of rust:
1. This late model Sterling is fresh from a wash down and will be ready to hit the road again.The wing plow appears to have a few salt seasons under its belt.

2. This beefy Western Star was still dripping, but aside from its driver wheels, it looks new and fresh.

On the other hand, salt is a real no-no at the Halifax International Airport, which may explain why this 1970s International Paystar 5000 4x4 is still running and looking good. Once operated by the Federal Department of Transport at the airport, it is now running for a private operator within the terminal and sees light duty.
